A 60-year-old man died Friday, 10 days after he was involved in a vehicle crash in Gary, Indiana.

Robert Williams crashed about 1 p.m. Dec. 23 at an unknown address in Gary, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He was pronounced dead about 3:30 p.m. Friday.

An autopsy Saturday ruled Williams’ death an accident, the medical examiner’s office said. The primary cause was atherosclerotic heart disease, with complications from blunt force injuries sustained in the crash as a contributing factor.
